Norway 3rd Edition 2016 ISBN 978 184623 699 0

Supplement No.1 March 2018

Caution Whilst the RCC Pilotage Foundation, the author and the publishers have used reasonable endeavours to ensure the accuracy of the contents of this book, it contains selected information and thus is not definitive. It does not contain all known information on the subject in hand and should not be relied upon alone for navigational use: it should only be used in conjunction with official hydrographical data. This is particularly relevant to the plans, which should not be used for navigation. The RCC Pilotage Foundation, the author and the publishers believe that the information which they have included is a useful aid to prudent navigation, but the safety of a vessel depends, ultimately, on the judgment of the skipper, who should access all information, published or unpublished. The information provided in this book may be out of date and may be changed or updated without notice. The RCC Pilotage Foundation cannot accept liability for any error, omission or failure to update such information. To the extent permitted by law, the RCC Pilotage Foundation, the author and the publishers do not accept liability for any loss and/or damage, howsoever caused, that may arise from reliance on information contained in these pages. This supplement contains amendments and corrections sent in by a number of cruising yachtsmen and women, in addition to those culled from official sources such as Notices to Mariners. Positions and waypoints All positions and waypoints are to datum WGS84. They are included to help locating place, features and transits. Do not rely on them alone for safe navigation. Bearings and lights Any bearings are given in degrees True and from seaward. The characteristics of lights may be changed during the lifetime of this book and they should be checked against the latest edition of the UK Admiralty List of Lights. Note Where lights have been modified in the text do please remember to alter them on the appropriate plan(s). This supplement is cumulative and the latest information is marked in blue.

Kjøkøysund short cut There is a useful but intricate fair weather short cut from the bottom of the Østerelva down Kjøkøysund (28m bridge) between Kjøkøya and Kråkerøy. The short cut continues SW with close attention to the chart keeping N of the 10m bridge between Kjøkøya and smaller linked islands, S of Arishholmen (leading lights on Kjøkøya), then ENE into the open water of Lera S of the Vesterelva.

Bottled gas Only propane is available, so it is necessary to convert from butane to propane, or to carry sufficient supplies of butane (eg Camping Gaz). Suppliers of propane will not usually even partially refill butane cylinders with propane. Spares and repairs Maritim Båtutstyr has chandleries in Oslo, Fredrikstad, Kristiansand, Stavanger, and Bergen.

Tokens for electricity and showers (with toilets, in low building next to car park barrier) from Hotel Thon. Although the outer harbour mole is new, the inner harbours date back to the town’s trading days (mid-17th to late-19th century). From the 1880s it became popular with artists, including Edvard Munch, whose small wooden house just NW of the marina is now a museum. Since 2007, Åsgårdstrand has officially been a Tourist Town, allowing shops in the oldest part above the harbour the right to stay open 7 days a week.

Bridge openings 2018 15 April to 15 September: Daily, 0905, 1205, 1405, 1805, 2005 Saturday and Sunday: also 1605 16 September to 14 April: No bridge openings at weekends or on bank holidays Weekday openings: 0905, 1205, 1405

Spervigbukta 59º04'N 10º13'·3E Useful anchorage 3·5M S from Sandefjord on the west side of the fjord. Pastoral scenery with holiday homes. Favour N side of entrance to avoid shallow patch to S.

Plan: the 19m bridge across a shortcut SE of Mandal, between the mainland and the island of Skjernøy, is wrongly charted as 16m on Navionics charts (2017).

I Gudvangen Tourist transit centre with transfers from ferries to busses. There may be space in the small boat finger pontoons. New small pontoon is reserved for ferries. Restaurant pontoon is private. No fuel berth but nearby garage will fill cans. Busy kayaking centre, according to which the usual tidal range is less than 1m.

Flåm, from above head of fjord James Yarrow

Flåm, yacht and cruise ship quays James Yarrow

L Aurlandsvangen Now no yacht pontoon. Exposed wooden jetty at back of hotel. Small boat harbour unlikely to have adequate space or depth for yachts. M Lærdal The pontoon near the ferry berth is close to the road. Shallow entrance to the marina in inner harbour, which is only suitable for small or shallow draught boats. The 24·51 km Lærdal to Aurland tunnel is reputedly the world’s longest road tunnel.

B Kaupanger Attractive large pool off main fjord. Deep water guest pontoon between Sognefjord museum and ferry terminal. Electricity, water. Open to S and swell from main fjord. Berths with better shelter may be available in S winds in the private marina on the SW side near the entrance; phone for fuel. Shop 1M on the road towards Sogndal. The stave church has been in continuous use since the mid12th century. Recent archeological research dates the present church to c.1150. The altar, font and pulpit are 17th century. Reconstructions in 1862 were reversed in 1959-60, restoring it to its 17th century look.

D Slindaviki Now no fuel except in cans from garage. E Fjærland: rename Mundal, Fjærland The whole area is called Fjærland. The village and book town of Mundal is the main centre, with guest berths at the Hotel Mundal. Short stay only at the outer T-section of pontoon; electricity, water. Guest harbour wooden jetties are exposed. Better shelter in Kvamsøy. Fuel by arrangement.

Page 138

A Lustrafjord, Ornes This should be Ornes (Urnes), Lustrafjord. The old timber jetty next to the ferry berth is now marked ‘Private’. Although there is a charted anchorage near the ferry berth, the depth is shown as 17m and it is close to a rock awash. The old stave church can best be visited by ferry from Solvorn town quay. E Solvorn, Lustrafjord 61º18'N 7º15'E Small guest jetty with room for one yacht S of ferry terminal; 2m. Open to E. Private notice on ferry quay.

Mundal, Fjærland James Yarrow


F Balestrand

H Solnes, Steinsundøy The bridge to the N is 12m (not 15m). I Buskøyvåg, Buskøy This can no longer be called ‘active’. No shop, water, fuel, repairs. Page 141

Plan: J Hardbakke and K Djupevåg

Balestrand James Yarrow

G Kvamsøy The sunken barge has been filled with concrete to create the quay. Page 139

Hardbakke is 0·5M NE of the 15m bridge (not S as incorrectly shown on plan). The fairway is narrow, and can be busy with passenger ferries. It is also the local ambulance boat base. Substantial public wooden quay E of small boat marina, which has room for boats to 13m LOA. Djupevåg is 0·75M N of Hardbakke, 1·1M N of the 15m bridge over Indre Steinsund. Delete F on Steinsundøy on plan (correctly placed F is on Færoy N or Lagøyfjord).

Plan: Sognefjord is wrongly named Sognesfjord. Vadheimsfjord is wrongly named. It is the next fjord W. H (Vadheim) is at the head of the fjord. The fjord wrongly named Vadheimsford is Høyangsfjord. Høyanger, Høyangsfjord 61º12'·75N 6º04'·5E Town at the head of steep sided fjord. One yacht space on small old pontoon inside breakwater to little harbour on E side. Exposed to S. Shops, bank. Industrial area W of town. 1,286 stairs up 311m to hydrostation (2,500 steps the long way). Hardbakke, from end of visitors’ pontoon looking E. Berthing also possible on quay with green motor yacht John Sadd

N Lifjord The 23m cable shown on older charts over the main entrance, through Listraum, has been removed. A stream of 5 knots has been experienced in the Listraum, with strong eddies in the narrows at the N end. There is a 12m cable over the Risnesstraum entrance N of Risnesøy.

Høyanger pontoon James Yarrow

J Lavik Plan: The J for Lavik should be 5M SW of its position on the plan. Lavik is now an expanded ferry port, with nowhere to anchor or moor. L Floholm (Tjuvungane) The anchorage is deeper (c.10m) than stated. The ferry port Rijsdalvik can be seen across the bay.
